You always made your hometown Proud, And you will be missed.
one of the greatest movies made!
Once when Newman was asked if he ever considered straying, his answer was something like 'I get steak at home, why go out for hamburger' - not enough of that attitude around in Hollywerid, or anywhere these days.
I miss Paul. He was great.
Agreed about Cool Hand Luke, but when I was a kid The Sting just blew me away, thought it was great. Still do. Love it everytime I see it.
He was also great in The Hustler and The Color of Money.
He seemed immune to the Hollywood ego. He had other interests and didn't live the Hollywood lifestyle. One of the lasts of the true stars. A legend
He was a true icon- I think you you would have to look long and hard to find someone that could not speak kind about him. He will be remembered forever!
